Neil and Ida Down - Answered a Question by helliwell (25 Jun 08 22:21)

The weather on that side of Scandinavia is seldom as kind as the Baltic but the fjords are often like glass. I would suggest that you seriously think about a sea-sickness injection or at least one of the proprietary tablets when the sea gets uppity because it is a shame to spend so much time in such an undignified position. Keep trying them (periodically) until you find one that suits you then sit back and enjoy breakfast with the rest of us. Neil.

Have you tried seabands? These can be purchased from Boots for about £7 and have cured my seasickness problem completely! I was very sceptical before I tried them but they really do work, and I usually find that after a couple of days I can take them off. Good luck. Barbara.

I had bands, pills, but puked regardless. but i do think from reading about cabin positions (we were right at the front on a top deck)this might not have helped. we were on the aurora, returning from the caribean, and as we left madeira the capt came on the tannoy reassuring us that the aurora was built to withstand what mother nature threw at us!!the aurora did, my stomach didn't.. so you other guys, neil, ida + mcguire do i chance the fjords in mid august on the thompson celebration (i believe they have lovely loo's...).

Seriously get an injection the next time you start being sick. I was very sick for almost a day and when I gave up and called the medical centre, the nurse who came to my cabin told me off for having suffered for so long. said i should have called or come down to the medical centre after a few hours. Had to say that within 15 minutes of the injection I had stopped being sick and although I didn't exactly feel chipper, i think that had more to do with not having slept the night before and having spent so much time running back and forwards to the bathroom. I'm sure if I'd not soldiered on so long and had seen them earlier, I'd have made a full recovery much quicker.

The fjords are inland waterways of great beauty and are therefore pretty like glass. However to get there you go on the North Sea which like ANY sea can be terrible if the wind is up whatever the time of year. Hate to say this but I have been over the bay of biscay 5 times - always been like glass, the Med was so bad on one trip, the ship was going in 3 directions at once! Terrible seas last October in the Carribean etc. The only solution is to HAVE AN INJECTION = INSTANT RELIEF. Get a cabin as near to the middle of the ship as possible and on a lower deck. The most expensive cabins are in the worst place for those who suffer with motion sickness or come to that, the disabled! Save yourself money, Enjoy yourself more, take a cabin in the middle, on the middle (or lower) floor.

This Is A Really Good Deal But...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Price is obviously a huge factor when booking and cruise or holiday, so looking through the deals on our website 599 per person for a 10 night cruise looks like a really good deal. A look at the itinerary though might make you think it`s a bit cold in this region in December.P&O`s Aurora is one of her much loved older, smaller by today`s standards, ships. This itinerary sets sail on 6th December 2017 and calls at Hamburg, at 2 day stop in Copenhagen, Olso, Amsterdam and Zeebrugge for Bru...

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...
